apprehensive this could be the final hurdle. you're talking about the presence or the arrival of u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton. there is no doubt the u.s. can play a very important role in this. it can exert a tremendous amount of leverage on the israelis to avoid a ground invasion of the gaza strip. while the u.s. does believe that israel has a right too defend itself there is a widening belief here among many, this is what is being communicated to the u.s. by egyptian officials, that a ground invasion and further military escalation will not solve this. we've been down this road before. >> go ahead, ayman. if you're still there. >> i'm still here. i was saying that they've been down this road before, used the military option back in 2008, and previously it hasn't solved the gaza problem and so many people are saying that this has to stop. to really think of a new paradigm shift in how to solve the crisis in gaza and the larger with the israeli/palestinian conflict. >> yesterday we were talking about the americans passively having too light a footprint in the region, against the back
, thanks so much. >>> joining us from tel aviv is nbc news correspondent martin fletcher. from your perspective, what are israeli authorities saying about the potential of a cease-fire coming this hour? >> reporter: well, you know, the israelis have been saying all along, pouring cold water on to the reports which have come from arab sources that an agreement and a truce was going to be signed this evening. there was one radio report that said senior israeli officials said it would happen, but otherwise, there's been silence. the only thing that's come out from the israeli sources is that the deal is not wrapped up and that there is still a long way to go. very important issue. as ayman mentioned. i think the key is the sound bite from prime minister netanyahu. he's calling for a long-term solution through diplomatic means if possible. what he means if it isn't possible there's still the ground force invasion on the ground, it's still an option until that's a deal. there isn't yet a deal. it very close, it appears, but it appears it's not as close as the sources who are saying that
the world today. that does it for us tonight. we'll see you tomorrow night. thanks for being with us. >> well i am stunned. >> mitt romney, kick him when he's done. >> did you see the sunday shows yesterday? >> hitting their nominee. >> we have to show we're sere serious. we have to like them first. >> we would never talk like that. >> there's not a lot of people defending mitt romney. >> when you're in a hole, stop digging. he keeps digging. >> newt gingrich, i think it's nuts. >> they have to do something. >> we have the fiscal cliff. >> the cliff. >> the cliff. >> whatever that means exactly. >> whatever you want to talk about it. >> the math doesn't work otherwise. >> i don't think it works. >> how is that going to go over with the tea party? >> paul ryan and others will not win this issue. >> here's a news flash. >> the elections have consequences. >> we just had this election. >> it's already starting 2016. >> we're already talking about 2016. >> marco rubio. >> chris christie is off and run running. >> you have been wearing that fleece a lot. >> i'm going to die in thi
, which is the party president morsi used to be a part of. the fact is in the end he is focused more on egypt's needs than necessarily hamas' needs. >> when we talk about the -- you're talking about the money, we're talking about what the u.s. gives, $2 billion annually, the imf has $4.8 billion in the reserve fund to help egypt and senator lindsey graham over the weekend was very forceful saying we are watching you. they know full well that aid will be cut off if they don't act accordingly trying to broker a peace deal, correct? >> i would say it's more than just trying to broker a peace deal. i think it's fulfilling its obligations. in the first sense its international obligations. one thing the president morsi understood is if hamas continued to do what it was doing and if the pressures on him led to him breaking the peace treaty with israel, then it wasn't just american assistance that would be put at risk. it would be all the assistance internationally. all the investment egypt would need. so he's putting egypt's needs first and foremost and that suggests that actually the econo
the world today. that does it for us tonight. we'll see you tomorrow night. it's thanks for being with us. >>> republicans are going to have to stop trying to sound moderate and reasonable because they are making rush limbaugh freak out. on second thought -- >> all hell broke lose on the republican side. >> republicans seem to be at a critical cross road. >> they are tripping over themselv themselves. >> there is no conservative movement. is rush limbaugh's country gone? >> yes. >> the horror. >> we have a cultural problem. >> why would so many republicans be upset about this? >> here's a news flash to the republicans. >> mitt romney was not our best candidate. >> well i am stunned. >> mitt romney, kick him when he's done. >> did you see the sunday shows yesterday? >> hitting their nominee. >> we have to show we're sere serious. we have to like them first. >> we would never talk like that. >> there's not a lot of people defending mitt romney. >> when you're in a hole, stop digging. he keeps digging. >> newt gingrich, i think it's nuts. >> they have to do something. >> we have the
? in an earlier exchange of the phrase was used -- if republicans are talking about tax increases -- actually, republicans are talking about tax increases. calling it revenue increases as part of the deal. plenty of republican members of congress are scrambling are looking for ways to tinker with things are then marginal tax rates. i will name three specific members who have talked about it or something very much to like it, all who signed the pledge. bob corker, tom coburn, and john mccain. what is going on? it certainly looks to a layman that there is a desperate scramble to find a way to raise revenue in a cbo-scoring way that would not be seen as violating the pledge. the question is, is the pledge of losing its magic? >> i take very strong exception to taking this poll seriously. because if you ask people, the vast majority of whom are not going to be subjected to this tax, and they are being told that somebody else will have to pay. and if you discover in the process that only 60% of the voters are in favor of that, i think it speaks for itself and speaks very well of the american peopl
